Hi, I just made a repair on my board
I'm pretty sure the ding and foam underneath was 100% dry, I had a sticker over it from after ding occurred till after surfing took off sticker to make the repair
I set the board down on a hidden rock in the sand
smallish ding about the size of my thumb but kind of deep so like I saw on a repair video, I cut out the worst part of the cracked glass. Once I pulled off the cracked piece I could see that the foam was hardly affected. This is a Blue 8'2", I think a pretty thick layer of fiberglass.
I poured about .75 oz resin and added 6 drops of hardener weather was about 75 and very humid.
I put down a thin layer of resin and then some glass shreds, then three small patches with resin inbetween, pressed out air bubbles, to fill up the hole even with the rest of the board.
Dry time was stated as 45 minutes and now 2 days later the very top of the repair is still wet/tacky, but the patches feel pretty firm underneath. I intermittently used light heat to try and speed up drying so I could surf!
What do I do?
Mix up a small batch of resin with much more hardener and put it over the wet stuff, mix what I can into the surface of the 1st repair and hope I get enough new hardener in to make it harden completely?
Cut out repair and start over with more hardener?
Thanks for reading and for any tips
